Richard Hawley reminisces about the classic era of packaging, when style and content reached their zenith...
"The layout was done by the Van Winkle Design Group. The simplistic look yet obvious attention to detail had European distributors importing US copies due to demand, despite the box clearly stating that it was "For distribution in North America and Australia only". Later Microprose would take over the publishing and distribution of Spectrum Holobyte products in europe and this classic silver box gave way to the usual Microprose printed slip-cover. The original first edition box as printed in the United States had a silver F-16 with "Falcon 3.0" embossed into the carton. It doesn't show up to well on the scan here. Note the "3.0" is not coloured, it's left for the light to catch raised surface. This box became something of a design classic in the computer game publishing world."
